I turned the volume up, on my computer speakers, but … I didn’t see the link to the video.

Did you include it ?

I’m excited to hear this thing run !

By the way, Charles ….

Time to stop calling it a “1950’s” saw.

Here’s where you can try to find the actual year it was made, from the serial number of the saw:

Cool, huh ?

Congratulations !!!

After you finish the table , it looks like you’ve got a great saw there : ) Congratulations !!
If you’ve never used a RAS before , please be extra careful about starting your cuts and be sure to use a blade meant for your particular saw : )

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
